Order of the Seers
Chapter 1: The End


Sunday, June 22, 2008 



Liam was losing his patience. “Aw, come on! Are you serious? You can’t

want to ride this thing again!”



Instead of answering her older brother, Lilli remained in her seat as

the Ferris wheel conductor looked on expectantly, hand outstretched and

waiting for another two tokens.



The way Lilli’s skinny arms hugged her book bag while she stared

blankly at the pressed metal floor of their “Fairy Land Caboose” made it

hard for Liam to stay angry. The sight of her looking so dejected softened

him enough to give the conductor his fifth set of tokens in less than 45

minutes. Liam settled back into his seat just as the lap bar clamped down

uncomfortably against his thighs.



“Lilli, say something. Why’d you drag me out here if you were just gonna

sulk? I hate the carnival, you know that.”



“I know something… okay? Just… trust me. We have to stay here.” Her

voice was so low he could barely hear her over the wind-up music that was

blaring from the overhead speakers.



“Did Mom say something to you?”



Lilli responded to his question with silence and a barely discernable

shake of her head back and forth. He tried again.



“Lilli! Did Mom…?”



“Yes,” she snapped.



They both fell silent again as Liam took in the latest weird thing of the

day. Lilith Knight, or Lilli as she preferred to be called, had always been

strange. Even when she was five, she could beat Liam at chess lazily, without

even thinking about it. She would find things and give them to you before

you asked for them. Before you, or even she, knew why. Up until recently,

he thought she was just a freak. No biggie. All little sisters are like that, he told

himself.



It was only in the past few months that his perception of her began

to shift, after her prediction that he would catch his new girlfriend, Krista,

kissing his teammate Lance in the locker room after their championship

game. At the time, he’d brushed off her premonition as meddling. Krista

wasn’t even his girlfriend and his team was 1-1 with the whole basketball

season ahead of them.



He’d forgotten her warning completely until two months later when he

ran back into the locker room after winning the championship to get the

jacket he’d left behind and immediately smelled Krista’s perfume. When he

found them, two thoughts overshadowed the scene unfolding in front of

him. The first was that what they were doing wasn’t really “kissing,” though

he could see how a sheltered thirteen-year-old would describe it that way.

His second thought was that Lilli was right; she was exactly right. He was so

stunned by Lilli’s accuracy that he didn’t even bother to disturb them, leaving

his new ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend to their business. From that

moment, Liam understood that Lilli wasn’t just a freak, or more accurately,

that she wasn’t a freak at all. She was special…gifted.



The sound of Lilli’s sniffling followed by the trembling of her body

as she began to cry uncontrollably broke the long silence that had fallen

between them. What the…, Liam half-mumbled as his mind swung from

irritation to absolute bewilderment. Slowly and deliberately, Liam moved his

palms down the front of his face as he fought the urge to shake the truth

right out of her and end whatever this was. But he couldn’t. She’s so brittle

already, he thought, without any idea as to why. So instead, he reached out

to envelop his sister in his arms, trying to soothe her and comfort her from

some unknown force.



“Lilli, it’s all right. I’m sorry, okay? Don’t cry. Just… tell me what’s going

on. Why are we here?”

My name is Cerece Rennie Murphy, but, among my 5 siblings, I am known and teased by my superhero name, Wonder Worry, (and yes, I am a little worried about your reaction to what I just said). While in my youth, I used my superpower to whip minor setbacks into epic tragedies in 60 seconds flat, I no longer have the time to hone the skills I once possessed, which were handed down to me VERY CAREFULLY by my mother and her mother before. 



Instead of spending my days imagining worst case scenarios, I am now on the front lines of true disaster prevention – treading the fine line between boo-boos and permanent brain damage, fighting crimes of curiosity, omission, absent-mindedness and sleep deprivation. I carry others down the winding, bumpy road of youth that starts out at the nexus of unique and brilliant but intersects with narcissistic serial killer at some distant point I hope fervently to avoid. As you might have guessed, I am a wife and mother of 2 small children. Luckily, my family lights up the sky so I never stumble too hard or lose my way.



I would lament the luxury of needless worry, but alas, I don’t have the energy. As I write this, I am losing a battle fought between my trusty sponge and a hardened glob of half-eaten cheese that traveled from the kitchen to the living room rug in the palm of a very small, but mischievous hand. Its stronghold on the fibers suggests occupancy of at least 2 days, but I’ll never know for sure. Rather than despair, I’ve chosen to retreat to my keyboard, noting that I have won the war - most of the rug is un-cheesed. 



Before I worried. Now, I write. 



I look forward to slowly, quietly, in my own shy way, becoming a part of this community. If you would like to get to know me and my work a bit better, you can visit me...
